Hope Exchange through St. Ann's Episcopal Church in East Nashville:
East Nashville Hope Exchange is a learning community for elementary school children and those who care for them. Our five-week, tuition-free summer program develops local children’s literacy and leadership skills while strengthening caregiver and community involvement in children's education. Transcending socio-economic, racial, and religious barriers, we provide a supportive environment that nurtures hopes and dreams and allows unseen gifts to be made visible.
Founded in 2002, our summer program focuses on disadvantaged children who have completed grades 1–3. We offer small classes with a teacher and 1–2 volunteers, coupled with a unique interactive curriculum which includes building-block reading and writing classes that introduce children to an array of books, poems, and articles connected to weekly themes which develop literacy, leadership, and cooperative learning skills. Music, dance, and field trips relating to the theme supplement learning. Students also participate in arts and crafts, athletic games, weekly cultural enrichment trips, and various social activities, which are structured to incorporate conflict resolution skills and responsibility. In 2011 East Nashville Hope Exchange received 501c3 status from the State of Tennessee. The program typically begins in June and ends in mid-July.
